Constructions industrielles de la Méditerranée S.A. (CNIM, former name: Constructions navales et industrielles de la Méditerranée) is a French engineering company. It is a successor of a shipbuilding company Société Nouvelle des Forges et Chantiers de la Méditerranée. CNIM provides turnkey industrial solutions in environment, systems innovation and energy. It constructs industrial plants, including waste-to-energy plants, flue gas treatment systems, waste and water treatment plants, missile launchers, and modular and motorized pontoon bridges.[1]

It was formerly a manufacturer of escalators and passenger conveyors for Metros and Airports, primarily in French speaking markets. A number of CNIM escalators are installed on the London Underground system as well as Hong Kong's Mass Transit Railway. Thirty CNIM escalators in the Paris Metro system, installed in 2006-2007, were to be replaced by 2015 because they were built 10cm too wide, according to RATP Group, the operator of the stations.[2]

Its subsidiary CNIM Babcock Services repairs and maintains industrial boilers and household waste treatment plants, while another subsidiary Babcock Wanson develops industrial boilers, and air and water treatments.[3] Its main shareholder is Compagnie Nationale de Navigation with a 20.78% stake.[3]
